Matthew Hamilton reports in the Times Union “Wednesday brought a victory for the Cuomo administration on the overarching issue of who controls the Gov. Andrew Cuomo-created Women’s Equality Party.
But an appellate court ruling did uphold a lower court’s decision to toss WEP candidates off the ballot on a technicality.
The long-story short for the nightmarishly confusing case is this: The Cuomo-backed group is the only one of three that has standing as the party’s controlling entity, according to the ruling. That makes clear who actually is in charge for the first time since two groups challenged for control of the party earlier this year.”
